"35 Kms away from Bangalore city on way to Magadi, near the confluence of Arkavathi and Kumudvathi rivers; SPOORTHIVANA – a dream project for preserving all your cherished memories by planting saplings, has come up in 300 acres of sprawling terrains belonging Karnataka Government at TG Halli (Thippagondanahalli) reservoir catchment area.

The site is worth visiting. What I like about them is the reasons they give for Tree Planting. "Just plant a tree. It evolves itself by adjusting to the changes of the nature. Gives shelter to innumerable birds, insects and animals. Absorbs poisonous gases that heat up the earth. Prevents soil erosion, preserves moisture and enriches fertility of the land. Grows as a gigantic, marvelous creation that stands as a treasure chest of your memories!".
